Cricket is a game with a lot of terminologies. This can make it difficult for people to understand the game, especially if they’re new to it. This article will review the different bets you can make before, during, and after a cricket match.
What Is Cricket?
Cricket is a sport played by two teams of 11 players each. The game aims to score as many runs as possible by batting and bowling. There are two types of crickets: international cricket and domestic cricket.
International cricket is the most popular form of cricket and is played between countries around the world. Domestic cricket is played in different countries and is more competitive than international cricket.
Types of Bets
There are many types of bets that can be made when watching cricket. Before making a bet, it is vital to know the terminology used to describe these bets.
The following is a brief breakdown of the most common types of cricket bets and their definitions:
1) Match Bets: A match bet is when you wager who will win a particular match. For example, if you bet on England to beat Sri Lanka, your bet would be considered a match bet.
2) Series Bets: A series bet is when you wager how many matches will be played in a particular series. For example, if you bet on England to win the Ashes series, your bet would be considered a series bet.
3) Toss Bet: A toss bet is made when you predict which team will be picked to bat or bowl first in a particular game. For example, if you expect India to bat first in the next round, your toss bet would be considered a toss bet.
4) Multi-Bet: A multi-bet is when you simultaneously make multiple bets on the same outcome. For example, if you place five bets on England to win the series and a bet on them to win the toss, your multi-bet would be considered five bets on England.
5) Spread Bet: A spread bet is made when betting on both teams involved in a particular match. For example, if you want to place a bet on India winning the second Test (they won the first by 18 runs), you would be making a spread bet as India will not play again until after the fourth Test. Your spread bet would involve two teams that have played each other before.
6) Totals Bet: Totals bets are made when one team or player has, either way, odds or a specified margin for victory. For example, if you pick Pakistan to win at 9/4, having an Asian handicap of -6 and -4, you are making totals bet.

What Do I Need to Know?
If you’re new to cricket betting, you’ll likely want to know some of the terminology used in betting on cricket matches. This guide will explain what you need to know about cricket betting terms and how they work.
The first thing you’ll need to know is that there are two forms of cricket betting: fixed odds betting and point spread betting. Fixed odds betting are the more popular form as it allows you to win a much more significant amount if your team wins.
This means it’s usually best for those who aren’t too confident in their cricket skills. Point spreads are best suited for those who enjoy the thrill of winning massive amounts on the toss.
What is the Cricket betting terminology?
In cricket, there are some terms that bettors use when placing bets. Here, we will discuss a few of the more common ones.
1. Over/Under: This refers to the number of runs that either team will score in a given match. The over bet is made if the total number of runs scored by both teams is greater than the over count, and the under bet is made if the total number of runs scored by both teams is less than the undercount.
2. Handicap: This refers to the difference in batting or bowling abilities between two teams. For example, a team with a significant handicap might be expected to score fewer runs than a team with a slight handicap, regardless of how well they play.
3. Match Bet: This is betting on whether one team will win a match. The bet can be placed on any point in the game, as long as one side has not already won or lost that point (e.g., first innings/last innings).
